Hello,
I was wondering if you had a copy of your jitter glitter/ready confetti in any of your packets. I would love a copy for the beginning of the year. None are as cute as yours. I would love to know where you got the clipart as well.

Thanks!!

Hey Cara!
I purchased the chalk one up for being organized bundle. Most things printed fine but I could not get pgs. 66-69 to print. I'm not sure if it is my computer/printer or if something else is wrong. Sorry to bother you but I really needed the months of the year pages. Thank you for all that you do! I am a huge fan and have used so many of your creations in my classroom.
Thanks!

Hey Cara! I have a quick question. I can't seem to get my preview to work on anything in TPT. I am wondering which would be best to purchase, the Rock Your Fluency ~ Pre-Primer & Primer Dolch Fluency Phrases, Games, & Stories, or the Rock Your Fluency, First Grade Edition? I am teaching first grade for the first time this year. I previously taught 2nd grade. Thanks for your help.

Hi Cara,
I absolutely love your Chalkboard Classroom theme set and had a question concerning your center signs. Do you take any labeling requests on your items? I teach preschool and must have the exact wording with a picture representing it on our interest areas to follow the curriculum.
Here are the 10 interest areas:
1. Blocks
2. Dramatic Play
3. Toys & Games
4. Art
5. Library
6. Discovery
7. Sand & Water
8. Music & Movement
9. Computers
10. Outdoors

Thank you for your time reading this and look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Cara
First of all I would like to say a big thank you for the amazing work you do. I do however have a question i just spent 32dollars on the fluency pack thinking it was learning centres but they were just fluency phrases that i won't be allowed to use in the classroom and was wondering if I could exchange it for something else. I went to the preview but only the front cover screened. But I can understand if that's not how it works. If there is anyone else that might need it happy to give away. Maybe make sure you can preview some of the pages that way others won't fall the same way. Australian dollars that turns out to be over 35dollars.
Thanks for your time

Love your anchor numbers. However, I do not teach or use the "fancy" 1 in kindergarten. Thought it couldn't hurt to ask if 1 is/could be available as a simple stick - no notch at the top or line at the bottom.

Hi, I bought a resource of your page (ready set learn back to school). I used it last year and it was fantastic. For some reason the sheets are all blurred so i have just repurchased it again and even though i have down loaded it I am not able to view the worksheets but some of the resources are clear. I was wondering has anyone else had any of these issues?

Wow, Cara. Good stuff! You've done very well for yourself and your fellow teachers. I am new to tpt. I teach fourth grade and created a unique, high quality color coded math aid for grades 3 to 5 but have no idea how to market it. Any tips are greatly appreciated. Here's the product:

Hello there. I downloaded this file. It's great but I have a question about the operations unit and possibly others that say, "Look at the objects below" or "Copy the objects below." There are not pictures on those cards...is there supposed to be or am I supposed to put something? Under Operations and Alg Thinking - it's card 2 and then like 5 or 6, something like that. Thank you!

I bought your Mystery Math product, laminated it and got it all set for my kinders and then found out 3 weeks before school starts that I am being moved to third grade.

Cara, Thank you SO much for all you do and share! Your blog was the first teacher blog I ever discovered and I have learned SO much from you! I can't thank you enough! I love these labels and I would love for everything in my classroom to be labeled with this pack...but I'm missing a few (library labels and the missing numbers). I just moved to a new school and can't wait for the update so I can have everything done by the beginning of school! Is there any chance you'll have this pack updated by August 10th? I understand if not...just wanted to ask because I'll need to use different labels if not. Thanks again SO MUCH!! =)

Love this idea! Also wondering about copying like previous question. I noticed that the 1st page has 2 covers but then the rest of the pages have different top & bottom.

Is it possible to have them set up so that you can stack cover & pages so that they can be copied and 2 sets come out, staple on left side & then just cut in half....so that you end up with 2 books?
